You could get paid to drink gin and travel the world with a friend

Do you like gin? Want to get paid to drink it?

Do you like gin? Want to get paid to drink it? Well, you may be in luck. London bar group Mr. Fogg’s has partnered with Bombay Sapphire to hire a person to not only drink gin for a job but also travel the world for 80 days to do it. Oh, and you get to bring a friend! Seriously? This sounds too good to be true.

But actually, it is for real. The job offer is part of the launch of a new bar from Mr.Fogg called Mr. Fogg’s Society of Exploration, which opens on September 14. The new venue was inspired by Phileas Fogg of the Jules Verne novel Around the World in 80 Days. Trip stops include Paris, Hong Kong, Bombay and San Francisco.

The main responsibilities of the job include drinking lots of gin, documenting their travels and gathering botanicals and ingredients to help build a new cocktail. You also get to invent a new drink? Come on.

Applicants must be at least 21-years-old, have a passport, be adequately skilled at social media and love to travel. All expenses are covered but the traveling gin drinker will not get paid until after the trip is over.
